Festive Celebrations

Chinese New Year Celebrations

This year, the school celebrated the Year of the Rooster on 27 January 2017. Together with the parents of our Primary One and Primary Two students, we ushered in the “Golden Rooster” with a two-hour concert. We enjoyed the performance items put up by our teachers, especially the hilarious skit on the customs of the Lunar New Year and were also energised by the wild “Rooster Dance” which everyone participated. The celebration ended on a high note with the performance by the external Lion Dance Troupe.  

In addition to the successful concert, we also had interesting fringe activities like our pre-assembly item on the significance of the Lunar New Year and the Chinese Zodiac, differentiated Art & Craft lessons on creating rooster-themed face masks and bookmarks as well as our customised CCE lessons on the customs of the Lunar New Year. These planned activities have helped to further enhance the students’ understanding and appreciation of the Chinese culture.

Children’s Day

Children’s Day is celebrated on the 5th of October. In the celebrations this year, amidst the fun, the school wants to increase children’s social awareness of how to deal with people with some disabilities. On this day, the teachers facilitated a classroom discussion on the challenges faced by the less fortunate children and how they can help them overcome or manage some of their challenges.  

They also took part in the Sharity Elephant Donation Drive and Toy Buffet to help the needy children. Through these activities, the school hoped to cultivate the values of empathy, appreciation and respect. 

During the concert organised by the teachers, the children enjoyed an eventful and meaningful day of fun-filled activities. The efforts on helping the less fortunate continued after the celebrations as students contributed generously to the toy collection. They even set up a booth to distribute the toys to the less fortunate children. This is the children’s way of contributing back to the society.
